the latest from republican senator john mccain, and obama supporter mayor rahm emanuel of chicago. plus analysis from ruth marcus of the "washington post." mark leibovich of the "new york times magazine." bob shrum of the the "daily beast." john fund of the "national review." and cbs news political director, john dickerson. here comes the storm because this is "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and good morning again. welcome to "face the nation." and if there were not enough political and weather news, add this-- an earthquake that measures a magnitude of 7.7 has taken place off the coast of western canada. no injuries or damage reported so far there. so we're going to start with the big storm up the east coast of the united states, hurricane sandy. for that, we go to chief meteorologist david bernard from our miami, florida, station wfor. dave, tell us what you know. >> reporter: all right, good morning, bob. all right the weather is starting to affect the mid-atlantic states and the outer ban
's way. you saw john mccain raise the bar for the president. saying remember john mccain suspend-- he did it a couple of times, but one for hurricane gustav, a knocked a day off the republican convention to try to create a sense of "i'm president." one of the things important about taking the president off the campaign trail in terms of this early vote question, when want president ams can to town he's fly paper and gets people there to the events. what do the campaigns do? they turn those people into solterlz who will then go knock on dispersants on that final push at the end. they also turn them into votes in some states. i was in ohio this week. they were bussing them from the event to the early polling place where the, where the romney forces were watching to see how big of a turnout they got. if he is not on the trail to have that activity happen, then the early voting has to happen by its own but without that strong push from the candidate. >> they will send bill clinton, michelle obama. they will have other people to do this. >> schieffer: john what, about that? the president can't
to special interest groups. president obama does tha look at this clip from this debate against john mccain. >> actually, i am cutting more than i am spending so that it will be in that spending cut. john: what? what expending cut? ineased spending to at $3 trillion. but newsday columnist ellis henequen -- ellis henican says i am wrong to be so cynical. he said he would cut, and he spent like a drunken sailor. >> we all want a president who will say something way before he becomes elected and feel like he is completely, rigidly tied into that in ways that he cannot deal with events ashe happen. a lot of stuff happens, some of it was pretty bad, and you want a president to is in there being flexible for you john: he was be really flexible. >> okay. john: when he debated hillary clinton he said -- he complained that government spent some much money on programs that don't work, and he was going to eliminate a whole host of them. >> we need to eliminate a host of programs that did not work, and i want to go to the federal budget line by line, pagg by page, programs that do not work we should cu
polls. what it shows is that john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we think we've got a real good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> here's something interesting as we know now. the president won all those states that mitt romney mentioned, tony. do you think the prediction is going to be a bit better this time around? >> it's not for -- i hope romney isn't making those kind of predictions today. predictions shouldn't be his business. it should be racing as fast as he can across the finish line. but look, campaigns are tough. this one is still really tight. a lot of these races are still really tight. and there are things that none of us know about. polls don't know what turnout is going to be on election day. that's always been traditionally incredibly difficult to predict. and that makes big differences. so we'll see. >> i want to talk about something that we are surprisingly talking about, karen. paul ryan, joe biden both of them h
't be flummoxed on sunday. join bob on "face the nation." his guests will include republican senator john mccain of arizona. the meningitis outbreak has claimed a 25th life today. 331 cases have now been reported in 18 states. we knew that the victims were victims of contaminated steroids produced by a massachusetts pharmacy, but what the f.d.a. told us today about that pharmacy came as quite a surprise. here's dr. jon lapook. >> reporter: the food and drug administration tested 50 vials suspected to be a source of contamination in the meningitis outbreak. they found all 50 were contaminated by bacteria or fungus. the f.d.a. says internal n.e.c.c. documents show the company tested a vial from the same lot in august and labeled it sterile. the inspection also focused on the clean room at n.e.c.c. a clean room like this one is where ingredients are mixed to make sterile medication. the f.d.a. discovered n.e.c.c.'s own monitoring repeatedly found mold and bacteria growing on walls and surfaces. equipment used to sterilize medicine had "greenish-yellow discoloration" and "air ducts were dirty." acco
like the great john mccain on this point, when he pushed back and said, no, that's not true. >> i have been waiting this whole campaign, we've talked about this earlier, for mitt romney to show one inch of spine -- >> how about shame? >> shame or spine, whatever. there's not a single courageous statement or move he's made as a politician that i can discern, unlike his dad. he's the opposite of his dad who took gutsy positions, even at political cost, again and again and again. >> there are different versions of the dream here at "hardball." >> coming up, two strategies. one candidate is playing the role of incumbent, avoiding contact with the media. the other is acting like the underdog, crisscrossing the country doing a blitz of television. here is the surprise. the roles are in reverse. governor romney is acting like an incumbent, like dick nixon, obama is acting like the challenger. what's behind both strategies? >>> while everyone was paying attention to the presidential race, very quietly and under the radar, the democrats have significantly improved their chances of holding contr
was beating john mccain in early voting by 19 points. democrats are famous for their get out the vote effort that precedes election today, early voting tends to favor them. look how it did in 08 obama 19 at that time. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger
. >> senator graham and fellow republicans senators john mccain and kelly ayotte are calling for a select committee of lawmakers, perhaps from both the house and senate -- to investigate the attack. the obama administration has said it wants to wait for an independent board to finish its review before making any assessments about the attack. in the meantime, the president's team, both at the white house and his campaign, say republicans are trying to take advantage of a tragedy. >> as soon as the final report is completed, that will be released. but this is not a time for treating this like a political football, which is what mitt romney and many republicans are doing. the american people deserve and want better than that. >> the state department believes the report will be finished sometime in december. heather? >> heather: molly henneberg live for us from washington, thank you. gregg? >> gregg: taking a look now at the race for the white house, this final weekend before election day. the latest real clear politics average of national polls, take a look at this. president obama barely e
and this is a republican part of the state, that john mccain was going to lose, that senator obama was going to carry ohio, and the winner of ohio almost always wins the white house. that is a big open question this time and today, this is just one stop, today, though, anecdotally, there's more energy, more passion, they're working harder at the republican offices because they think they can surprise us on election day and make up that gap. to be clear, the obama campaign has had a lot of time and a lot of money because he didn't have a primary challenge. so this is going to be a test of whether the president spent his money wisely when the republicans were fighting amongst themselves on a turnout operation, but this final weekend in ohio, feels a whole lot different than the final weekend four years ago. >> john, david, gloria, appreciate it. thanks very much. >>> there's obviously going to be a lot more about politics in the days ahead, over the weekend and monday and tuesday, of course. i really do tonight want to focus on what's happening here and all around this region because there's just a lot of f
john mccain suddenly disappeared from the campaign for about a month when someone brought up mr. adelson who was in is in jerusalem with his millions of dollars and mccain said that has nothing to do with support for israel. that money is from china. mr. adelson doesn't have anything. that is the sands corporation. does anyone remember the last time frank sinatra sang at the sands? i mean right now it's an old funky hotel. motel six doesn't have that many bed bugs and he said i was just at the sands. where does the sands get these millions in billions? the sands corporation at that little footprint, that piece of dirt in vegas but all their money is from macau, from china. you don't operate in china unless you are actually fronting for the princelings of the politburo. we know where that money has come from and we know why mr. romney, don't we? don't we? barack obama just put massive tariffs on auto parts from china and for all the china bashing that mr. romney is going to be doing tonight, take my word for it, he refused to back the tariffs on auto parts is almost all the auto
't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spent a lot of time investigating and this pushing this forward because of concern for our con shuts all across the world and as well as the lives of those four, pushed forward and say waited a second, we need the people who perpetrated this imcrew. the president said he is going to bring justice to them. we got one of them. they are in to your knowledge. we can't get access to them. he penned a letter signed by the. we need in there he had some success. >> steve: absolutely. senator graham, senator chambliss from the great state of georgia they got access to the guy. you would think that the white house would want to get access to the guy. nothing. here is lindsey graham. >> this duration is -- administration is trying to run out the clock when it comes to benghazi. this is a story that changes by the day. the president has been awol when this comes to benghazi, libya leadership. they have been denying and deceiving the public. the person i blame above all else is president barack obama. he has oversold the dismantling of al al qaeda
, and essentially, it trounced john mccain's network. we were talking about contacts, volunteers, get out the vote machine. now, you bring up this point, and i thought it was interesting. you say he didn't really need all of that because there was enough voter enthusiasm and bush fatigue to put him over the top anyway, but you make the point here that you say the ground game, a superior ground game from this president, is absolutely critical. why the difference this go-round? >> well, the political rule of thumb is that your ground game, your field organization, can get you probably about two points above what you're polling or above what you would otherwise get. this is going to be a very close election. a lot of polls are showing it tied nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even wit
, the african-americans in that city. governor romney has to do better in the suburbs than john mccain did. in cleveland, the president gets a huge boost from the democrats, minority voters and cuyahoga county, like county, the suburbs, key battleground there. i'm back here in the cincinnati area, like to retrace steps from prior campaigns. when you came here late in 2004, you could tell the scene was out of the kerry campaign and the george w. bush was starting to take off. four years ago, hamilton county, normally republican, has to be republican for romney to win. when you came here four years ago, no doubt mccain campaign was on life support and the president carried this county four years ago. so in going around this morning, i can tell you this, both sides are working extra hard, the obama campaign concedes the romney campaign is doing much better than the mccain campaign. governor romney will be in this area, not cincinnati, but to the north of here tonight. we're told republicans expect some 35,000 people at that rally. if that kind of a number shows up, let's get ready for a long
thought he could get ohio, he would be there. john mccain did the same thing in 2008. he went to pennsylvania on sunday before election day, he lost by ten points. >> i want to talk about something that is interesting to me. calling it an endorsement was new york city's mayor michael bloomberg endorsed president obama but didn't shower him with praise. in 2008 obama ran as a pragmatic problem solver. as president, he devoted little time and effort to the coalition of sen trysts which doomed hope on illegal guns, job creation and deficit reduction. this is an endorsement. your reaction to this? you read it fully. >> the president had a number of republicans come out in favor of him. colin powell, the effect of an endorsement. the president tried getting republicans in washington to work with him. when they said the number is to have a one-term president. mitch mcconnell said it's difficult to work in washington when their agenda is to get rid of you. >> i don't think it does. mayor mike bloomberg wants to take away guns, cigars and big gulps. ohio and other states big on the se
was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are not advertising in philadelphia. they don't want the obama campaign to janelle to their turnout machine and that machine is going to start getting engaged and that is what is going to drive president obama's margin in pennsylvania. will be the philadelphia county area in southeastern pennsylvania. >> we are talking about a surprise in 2012. last year on twitter michelle said this tired of october surprise at this point. game for the beltway pundit. the majority of citizens are made up already and they've already voted. >> she's probab
christie are going to be doing a big rally, john mccain, marco rubio, rob portman, one big rally in ohio and then spreading out. that's going to be a big event. and major surrogate action on both sides, nobody believing anything, as we like to say, on the field. >> and very interesting last thing about romney, two stops in new hampshire within the last three days, which is kind of fascinating given -- i mean, he's closing his campaign in new hampshire, but he's also going there on saturday. interesting that they think that those, what, five or four electoral votes could be really important for them. >> one other big piece of news this morning, president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wrote an op-ed for bloomberg.com saying he'll vote for the president because of his record on climate change. and it reads in part this. "the devastation that hurricane sandy brought to new york city and much of the northeast brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief. one sees cli
